*Muslim holidays are approximate; precise dates depend on the sighting of the new moon.

**At the end of the AMIDEAST Education Abroad program students are free to travel either back to their home country or to other locations.

After the day indicated as the day students depart (typically following the final day of the program), students are responsible for all of their own transportation, housing, insurance, and other logistical arrangements. Students should note that after the departure day noted on the academic calendar, their program-provided insurance coverage will end and they must arrange for accommodations outside of AMIDEAST shared apartments or with AMIDEAST host families.
 

 

 

The Fall 2015 calendar will be available in Fall 2014.
